Virgin Atlantic has announced that it will move their Las Vegas service from Gatwick to Heathrow.

From March 31 2019 the airline’s London departure to ‘Sin City’ will cease to operate from Gatwick airport, where it has flown from since its inaugural flight back in June 2000. Instead, Heathrow’s Terminal 3 will be its new base with a daily scheduled flight leaving at 1240. The return service will depart Las Vegas at 1905.

Virgin is also adding a second daily flight to Boston, beginning also on 31st March 2019. The new service departs Heathrow at 2030 with the return flight leaving Boston at 0830.

Shai Weiss, Chief Commercial Officer, Virgin Atlantic, said: “From spring 2019 we’re making it even easier for customers to travel from London Heathrow to Las Vegas and Boston by introducing new flights. The new services have been timed to offer convenient onward connections for UK and US customers, and feature our award winning service, a three course meal and inflight entertainment on every flight. We’re also pleased to bring back our popular seasonal service between London Heathrow and Barbados to offer even more choice for holidaymakers.”
